The stand has been visited by many young people and also some distinguished guests like the Mayor of Sierpc Mr Jaroslaw Perzyński co-organiser of the Festival and his family, the founder and President of Polish Association of Home Brewers Mr Andrzej Sadownik with his wife, and the ex-director oft he main brewery company Kasztelan from Sierpc Mr Hubert Szczepek with his wife. It was a good ocasion to discuss the involvement of youth in the revalorisation of traditional crafts like brewery.
A competition on traditional brewing was held and interesting promotion materials were among the prizes. Thanks to the engagement of the young people about 100 questionnairs were collected in order to have some input to the Pilot Action.
